Raleigh Becoming Bike-Friendly

If you follow our blogs, then you know that HensonFuerst is a bike-friendly place to work. The HensonFuerst Cycling Team participates in several fundraising and community rides each year, and it’s not unusual to find helmets, jerseys, and other gear in our offices.

That’s why we are thrilled to learn that Raleigh is working to become a more bicycle-friendly city. According to an article over the weekend on WRAL.com,

The city of Raleigh has dedicated $500,000 and secured a $1 million federal grant toward the initiative to make the capital city safer for bicyclists.

The goal is to “promote and accommodate cycling as an alternative form of transportation,” said Eric Lamb, Raleigh’s manager of transportation services.

Raleigh has identified 400 miles of city streets that will be getting a bike-friendly make-over. In phase one, bike lanes will be added in conjunction with re-surfacing projects. The first of these new dedicated lanes were added to Avent Ferry Road.

HensonFuerst Attorneys applaud the officials who managed to snag the $1 million grant, and who are finally making safe biking a priority. We’ll keep you up to date with which streets will be getting the new lanes as the information becomes available.

We also encourage drivers to watch for cyclists, and give them the respect they deserve as fellow travelers on the road.
